Great Day to Visit a Castle

Today we went to Norwich to visit a castle. Norwich castle was built in 1067 and among other things served as a prison for 500 years.  There were amazing exhibits in the museum exhibits and to make it even sweeter admittance was free today for heritage days. We spent about 3 hours there exploring the castle and going through all the different exhibits.  The only exhibit we didn't get to see was the museum of modern art which was closed.

The tower guard's toilet. Laugh for the day was hearing a Mom tell her little one not to "go" in there!
Sara using the hands on weaving loom
Tom coming out of a tower room
An amazing tapestry that is not that old. It was made in 1907.
I took pictures of clothing dating back to the 18th century, but I will save that for another post.  I will leave you with a picture of something that warmed my heart:
